First Flight Cover – 1927
This is a cool piece of Airmail History. It is a stamped envelope from the September 1st “First Flight Under Contract” Chicago – New York. This was from the Cleveland to New York leg. It was stamped in Cleveland at 12:30 AM and arrived and stamped in New York a mere 16 hours later in New York.
Native American Beadwork
This is a very nice example of vintage Native American artwork. It was made in the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. It was purchased at a museum auction in the 1960’s. It is in very good condition with no missing beads. There is a bit of fraying at one end of the cloth. I am sure it took very many hours for the artist to make this.
Rare Early 17th Century European Fighting Axe
This was found in a field along the Wabash River between a French trading post and the Tippecanoe battlefield. That doesn’t mean that it had anything to do with either. I’m just sayin’. Anyway this is a very cool artifact. It is definitely very old. I now have new information from an expert. Apparently it is a battle-axe of a type originally from Eastern Europe (Hungarian or Polish) ca 1600.
Native American Indian Saddle Blanket
This is a very colorful piece of Native American artwork. It is in great shape for its age. It has a couple old stains on one side that I have not tried to remove. There are no holes or moth damage. It is definitely Native American and not Mexican.
